Fire struck on Monday, January 16, 2012 when a turbocharger exploded in the Ku Maloob Zaap field. A total of 213 workers were rescued from the burning KU-S platform by Petroleos Mexicanos (Permex). As the largest oil production field in Mexico – and the greatest source of growth in new production over the past couple of years – Ku Maloob Zaap is considered to be of high importance to the industry.
However, of high importance to the associates at Arnold & Itkin LLP is the safety and wellbeing of the workers involved in the KU-S fire. While no injuries have yet been reported in relation to Monday's explosion, this is not to say that legal action will not be required to address the issue at hand. Therefore, an oil rig explosion lawyer from the firm should be contacted immediately if you or a loved one were involved in this incident.
